Medication Recalls

When using directly donated medications, there may not be a routine recall notice received at the pharmacy. FDA provides a weekly reportregarding recalled medications. To use the report:

  • Narrow the report to drugs only 
  • Check report for NDC’s that are on file at the pharmacy
  • Check inventory for recalled Lot/Expiration numbers 

Pharmacies who provide donated medication to dispensing sites must notify those sites regarding any recalls that affect medication received from the source pharmacy.
